Enterprise Europe Network

Join the Info Day on the call for proposals for the new Enterprise Europe Network

Enterprise Europe Network call for proposals

Following the adoption of the Single Market Programme (SMP) and the announcement of the first funding opportunities, the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA) opened the call for proposals to setup the Enterprise Europe Network for 2022 and beyond.

The European Commission is now looking for proposals for the next Network, initially for the period from 1 January 2022 to 30 June 2025. This Network will be funded through the new Single Market Programme (SMP) which replaces the COSME Programme.

Focus on sustainability, digitalisation and resilience

The new Network will build upon its existing strengths, expertise and achievements. It will play a crucial role in helping European SMEs in their transition to more sustainable business models through dedicated sustainability advisers and other sustainability services.

It will also facilitate SMEs’ digitalisation by helping them adapt their processes, implement digital technologies and develop new innovative products. The end goal of the new Network is to boost SMEs’ resilience and fully recover from the COVID-19 crisis.

An online information session will take place on 22 June 2021 from 9:30 until 16:30 CET to present the modalities and the rules for participation in the call.
